Define all of the activities that will be necessary to create each deliverable in your WBS. Create a schedule for your project. First create the schedule by hand using Post-it® Notes, and then put the information into MS Project. Take screenshots of the schedule to be pasted in your word document that you are submitting.

Define all of the activities that will be necessary to create each deliverable in your WBS

The case’s history
It is your responsibility as the project manager to provide the project sponsor with an initial project report outlining your proposed project implementation strategy. You may make any assumptions you deem necessary as the project manager.
Grand Wines case study
As the project manager for a proposed project, you work for Grand Wines Ltd. and would like to provide each of the 20 sales reps with a wireless data entry device so they can instantaneously transmit customer orders to the company’s central sales database in Sydney. Around 400 independent wine and liquor outlets operate throughout NSW under the sales representatives’ service.
Currently, sales representatives manually fill out customer orders, leave a copy with the customer, and then send the orders to the Sydney sales department via mail or fax. There, the orders are entered into the sales database and handled by the inventory system in preparation for shipping to the customer.
What are the issues with the current procedure? The delays in entering orders into the system cause at least one day’s worth of missed opportunities to supply customers with goods. When sales personnel take orders from customers, they are unaware of the most recent inventory status of their products. Orders that are put on “backorder” because there isn’t enough inventory can create delivery delays. Human error frequently results in orders being “lost” or being erroneously recorded into the sales database. Many customers and sales representatives are unhappy with the way things are right now.
Competition-level wineries have made improvements to their order processes, exceeding Grand Wines Ltd. in terms of delivery time, order correctness, stock availability, and general client happiness.
Your CEO has emphasized the significance of the project to the business and has requested that you use your project management expertise to ensure the project’s success by adhering to the necessary project management procedures.
The project’s project leader has been given responsibility for you. Your manager has given you instructions that the project must be finished in 6 months and that costs should be kept as low as possible within the allocated budget of AUD 6,000.

This task builds on the case study that was used in Assessment 2. Fill out the following tasks for the same case study by making the following:
Plan for Scope Management Task 1 (10 Points)
Use a scope management plan to focus your efforts (including requirements, scope-out scope items, deliverables, and the scope verification procedure). (10 marks)
A list of features and functions in your application is needed.
Items in the scope-out are a list of the requirements that will be implemented as part of this system. The list of features and functionalities that are outside the scope of the current project but that could still be implemented for this application later is called the out-of-scope items.
Deliverables:
The scope verification method is based on the mentioned acceptance criteria.
WBS (level 2/3) task two (20 marks) Word document or MS Project
WBS is first presented in free-form or org chart formats. (20 marks)
Level 3 WBS must be created. A minimum of 40 tasks should be included. Use level 1 as the project life cycle’s four phases and an indented format.
Task 3: Create a Gantt chart using the previously created WBS (10 marks). In your WBS, specify all the tasks that will be required to produce each deliverable. For your project, make a schedule. Before entering the data into MS Project, manually generate the schedule using Post-it® Notes. Take screenshots of the schedule to put in your submitted Word document. Include all summary rows, including the first row with the project title, as well as any significant milestones. Ensure that the crucial path is visible. 10 markings
To begin, you must perform activity estimation, which entails estimating the length of each action and Before you can make a timetable and MS Project generates the Gann chart, dependencies between the tasks must first be established. Additionally, you must assign one resource per activity from the table below to each activity. (PS: You do not have to use all of the resources listed below; only use those that are necessary to finish your project.) All of the resources assigned for this project’s Gantt chart should be included. To demonstrate your efforts, please attach screenshots from MS Project.
Below is the resource allocation table that will be used.

Task
This task builds on the case study that was used in Assessment 2. Fill out the following tasks for the same case study by making the following:
1. Use a scope management plan to focus your efforts, including requirements, scope-out scope items, deliverables, and a method for scope verification. (10 marks)
2. Then, create a WBS using the org chart or free-form approach. (20 marks)
Take the WBS you’ve already created and plot it on a Gantt chart. In your WBS, specify all the tasks that will be required to produce each deliverable. For your project, make a schedule. Before entering the data into MS Project, manually generate the schedule using Post-it® Notes. Take screenshots of the schedule to put in your submitted Word document. Include all summary rows, including the first row with the project title, as well as any significant milestones. Ensure that the crucial path is visible. 10 markings
4. Employ bottom-up estimation to create a time-phased budget for your hypothetical project. Use the labor rates your sponsor provides, to the extent they do. For those you can’t acquire, approximate prices Find out from your sponsor how they handle indirect charges. Make sure to factor in your and your team’s direct labor expenditures, and then add 20% for fringe benefits. List all the assumptions and limitations you used to create your budget. Describe your level of estimation confidence and what would help you feel more assured. Describe known knowns and known unknowns for your project with examples. Describe your budgeting process for the two of them as well as any unplanned expenses. (15 marks)
5. Create a risk record for your example project with 4 hazards—3 negative risks and 1 positive risk. (20 marks)

Task 1: Scope Management Plan: Requirements and Details (5 points) attempts that are confusing or incomplete There are clear requirements, however, they are confusing or lacking. Clear descriptions of the requirements are outlined in the scope items. Clearly stated requirements, in-scope things, and out-of-scope objects Clear descriptions of the requirements, as well as of the in-scope and out-of-scope things that are pertinent to the case study
Assignment 1: Deliverables and scope verification (5 points) attempts that are confusing or incomplete Clearly defined deliverables are yet unclear or lacking. Deliverables are clearly described, and scope verification is established. Verification of the scope and a clear explanation of the deliverables The project scope is clearly stated, along with specific deliverables. Relevant to the case study, scope verification and acceptance are also defined.
Task 2: Work Breakdown Structure (20 points) attempts that are confusing or incomplete Along with a summary of the project scope, WBS is mentioned. The project scope and phase are covered in detail by the structured WBS. The WBS is organized efficiently and provides logical and comprehensive coverage for project execution. The Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) is organized, has logical and comprehensive project execution coverage, and is connected with the project schedule and resource matrix.
(2) Gantt charts (10 points) attempts that are confusing or incomplete Some tasks are included, a timetable is prepared, summary rows are displayed, and few or no milestones are indicated in the Gantt chart. A Gantt chart displays certain activities, a prepared schedule, and summary rows, the top row of which displays the project title, the total duration, a few milestones, and the critical path. The Gantt chart displays the majority of activities, the schedule, summary rows, the first row of the project’s title, the total duration, the majority of milestones, and the critical path. The Gantt chart displays all activities, creates a timetable, displays summary rows, the first row displays the project title and total length, displays all required milestones, and makes it simple to determine the critical path.
Budgeting Task 2 (15 points): attempts that are confusing or incomplete A few assumptions and restrictions that you employed when building your budget were stated once the bottom-up estimation was completed. Budget from MS Project, displaying the entire budget done with the bottom-up estimation. You mentioned a few suppositions and restrictions you utilized to make your budget. There are given examples of known knowns and known unknowns in your project. Budget taken from MS Project, broken down by total cost and by each summary task, with bottom-up estimation completed. You and the other members of your team’s direct labor costs, plus 20% for fringe benefits The majority of the presumptions and limitations you utilized to develop your budget were provided. expressed level of confidence in the estimate. There are given examples of known knowns and known unknowns in your project. Budget retrieval is done with the bottom-up estimation.

Detailed examples of known knowns and known unknowns on your project are provided. Budget taken from MS Project, displaying the overall and breakdown for each summary job and resource, as well as different costs.
2. Risk Register (20 points) attempts that are confusing or incomplete Some entries in the risk register have precise and consistent values, and others are all filled out. Most values in the risk register are accurate and consistent, and most of the register’s items are filled out. The Risk Register’s values are all correct and consistent, and each entry is filled out completely. The Risk Register’s values are accurate and consistent, and all of its items are filled out. The case study has implications for risks.
Requirements
In order to complete the aforementioned responsibilities, students must submit a variety of documents outlining their suggested project solution.
WBS stands for work breakdown structure.
Project management should be covered in the first significant part (1.0), which should also include the different project management outputs such as the charter, WBS, schedule, progress reports, etc.
Deliverables ought to correspond to those in the charter. There should be a distinct name for each item on the WBS. Add another adjective to help distinguish two items if there is a chance that people will confuse them. Examples of two things include “first publish report” and “second publish report.”
Number each line, with the major portions being 1.0, 2.0, etc.
Between three and twelve subsidiary sections should be created for each major section. More levels should be employed if a deeper dissection is required. Deliverables are the focus of every WBS item; they define the project’s “whats.”.
The WBS is characterized as an outgrowth of the activities that are included in the schedule. Free-form, org chart, or indented-outline formats are all acceptable for submitting the WBS. All interim and final deliverables should be listed in the WBS so that it appears to be finished.
Gantt chart or a schedule
? Given the charter and WBS, the schedule ought to seem finished. Without requiring heroics to finish on time, the schedule should seem reasonable. Add a WBS column to the left of the task name column. Name the overall project in the first row. Have all of the summaries been written using solely nouns (or adjective nouns, but with present-tense verbs)? Do all tasks and activities use the verb-adjective-noun structure in the present tense? Describe each milestone using a noun and a past-tense verb. No job should have any unanswered dependencies. Much of the schedule should be shown in the Gantt chart. display the critical path in red (or different hash marks if using a black-only printer). Display dependencies on the arrows. Make sure the text is large enough to read easily and that there are no more than 40 lines per page. Unless there is a substantial timetable, don’t include more pages than necessary; there is minimal need to align numerous pages for reading.
The APA style manual must be followed for all referencing in the project materials. Visit http://student.csu.edu.au/study/referencing-at-csu for a guide to the APA reference style, which the Faculty of Business currently uses.
This assignment requires an online Turnitin submission.
